These are two sermons given on the weekend of February 17-18, 2017 at the “City Lights” youth retreat at Cypress Bible Church in Houston TX. The weekend involved service in the community, overnight small groups in host homes, and large group dinners and discussions. I was asked to speak on the will of God and how to actually understand it. That topic became the central idea of the second message. The first message was an introductory message about the Bible, the meaning of life, and the gospel.
